161 - Tuesday 30th 161

Tue 30 Aug 1988

["Mike the Animal", or "Mike, Animal" ?]

Set off down 161 to push the new route found, by swinging off the 2nd pitch. Carried on down the pitches until we reached new territory - a free climbable rift ending in a very tight pitch. Spent about an hour enlarging this with a hammer before Wookey went down. This rift then enlarges and merges with another rift into a HUGE phreatic passage. Followed this for about 200m, with another short pitch, until another drop for which we had no tackle. Did a quick grade 2 survey on the way out.
